Coach Chris Acab’s comments:

Friday night’s game was a tale of two halves. In the first half, on defense, we forced four turnovers and scored one touchdown. In addition, our offense was firing on all cylinders, scoring four touchdowns in the first half. Unfortunately, I think our team got too comfortable and lost focus. We started playing undisciplined on defense and turning the ball over on defense. In addition, on the offensive side of the ball, we began making mental mistakes and turning over the ball. This, combined with the execution of Sparrows Point, led us to lose in a comeback fashion. Give credit to both Sparrows Point coaching staff and players; they did a great job adjusting and overcoming adversity.

We’re excited to learn from our last game and play a tough Loch Raven game this upcoming Saturday.

Schedule: Chesapeake hosts Loch Raven at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 23.

Kenwood High School

Conference: 1-0

Overall: 4-3

Last week’s results: Kenwood 30, Overlea 20

Top players of the week:

Senior Troy Dukes — 204 yards rushing, two touchdowns

Coach Derrick Krumholtz’s comments:

Overlea jumped out to a 14-0 lead by recovering consecutive onside kicks to start the game. We were able to settle in after that, scoring 22 points in the second quarter. The defense was fantastic in the second half, giving up only six points. This game was won on the backs of our offensive line, paving the way for a crucial fourth-and-3 to keep the clock running and then the game-sealing score three plays later. Being able to run the ball consistently and eventually score on that last drive, as well as convert for two points and leaving only 44 seconds on the clock after, put the game out of reach.

Schedule: Kenwood hosts Milford Mill Academy at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 22.
